bedfellows, president obama and governor chris christie now united in crisis. they have been working closely to clean up new jersey after superstorm sandy left parts of the state in ruins, but christie's been far from friendly with the president in the past, acting as one of mitt romney's most outspoken attack dogs, slamming the president's leadership in stump speeches and campaign rallies all year. listen to christie just two weeks ago. >> he never ran anything in his life so the president doesn't know how to lead. we watch what he's been like for the past four years. he's like a man wandering around a dark room, hand up against the wall, clutching for the light switch of leadership, and he just can't find it, and he won't find it in the next 18 days! >> apparently governor christie thinks the governor has found it. cnn contributors errol lewis and eric join us. i want to read a tweet you posted not too long ago. it's so cute that obama is trying to look like he's in charge with the hurricane. someone should ask the libyan consulate for a comment. do you still stand by this, and what do you

to go with governor romney. they don't feel the job security has been there, that president obama won't give it to them in the next four years. but then you talk to another suburban mom sitting next to her and she's going to stick with president obama in part because the deciding factor for her are the social issues. there are a lot of issues that go into play, but i have to say, top of the issues here is job security. >> all right, kyung lah, thanks so much from colorado. apprec athat. let's drill down deeper on the strategy of both of the candidates and see how the last-minute campaigning is shaking out. joining me now is tom price. a republican congressman from georgia and the chairman of the committee's policy committee. good to see you. and che sheila jackson, a democc congresswoman from texas, and she's not joining us from texas today. she's out on the campaign trail in columbus, ohio. good to see you as well, congresswoman. >> fredricka, good to be with you this afternoon. >> excellent. let's begin. we're talking about these candidates, president obama, mitt romney, they are cr
between governor romney and president obama on the issue of what to do now, other than to get a little tougher. i figure that is not going to work. iran is going to get a nuclear weapon. i do not care how many centers to put in place. they are moving forward and have made that clear. i don't think either candidate has laid out what they would do and where there would be a red line. would you draw a bad -- a red line? netanyahu has asked for it, but neither of our candidates have said what they are going to do. russia is very different than it was four years ago. in their aspirations and what they are doing in trying to influence the region and change things. it is one of the reasons i do not think we should pull our troops out of japan and western europe. we made a deal with the japanese and the germans that if they did militarize we will be there if some of their more hostile neighbors are thinking of expansion. i do not think we want to militarize germany or japan. if we leave, that is what is going to happen. i do not think that is good for the world. should the united states played
president barack obama and new jersey republican governor chris christie could produce what could be the biggest public works project in a generation, to meet and entrust that national emergency. remember when president obama was elected, he said he'd put a lot of people to work in shovel-ready job. turned out there weren't that many jobs that were ready in. the wake of sandy, i don't think there are enough shovels ready for up and down the jersey and new york coast. these jobs will be created. this destruction, estimated between $30 billion and $50 billion. i think it's going to exceed that. maybe at least get to the high end. will finally move the employment need until this country. -- in this country. just as did did in the wake of hurricane andrew. now, when we look at industries that have been hardest hit since the great recession, the one that stands out the most is the construction business. construction business is about half of what it was six years ago. the culprit, banks that are afraid to lend, excess of homes, no need for new buildings and roads. the federal governmen
governor romney was going to endorse president obama. we roman catholic say that boy had an epiphany. governor romney went from sank it was a mistake we did not leave 30,000 troops in iraq. he sounded like he was against the war from the beginning. i was amazed. he went from labeling russia last year as the single greatest geopolitical threats to the united states and even opposed the new gun control treaty that every republican said to push that, he said he would not have supported it. all of a sudden we can work with russia. you know that. did you hear that? i thought, turn that tv up. he is now putin's best friend. when as in the second debate what would you commit to, he said it depends. with these guys it depends on everything. it always depends who they're talking to or where they are. it depends on what the vote is. it always depends. i am from pennsylvania. the grandfather always said be aware of the convertists. one issue they cannot bring themselves to say they now agreed with us on was issues relating to women. think about it now. they are ready to jettison foreign-policy

an intelligent conversation. president obama after appearing with new jersey governor chris christie who, again, took time to praise the president. let's listen. >> i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and for the people of our state. and i heard it on the phone conversations with him. i was able to witness it today personally. and so we're going to continue -- our state government is here, doing what we need to do, we're coordinating with fema i want to thank the president for being here, and the input he has already had. it makes our operation even better. >> some say chris christie could win the election for mr. obama. seriously, will? >> look, i don't know. can he win the election for president obama? the answer is no. that's not going to have that big of an impact on the election. many piem look at chris christie. maybe i'm not looking with the appropriate amount of cynicism. politics deserve cynicism. chris christie has earned the last several years the right to be granted honesty and authenticity. and i think he's a governor, dealing w
. >> president obama met with new jersey governor chris christie yesterday. the president toured some of the worst hit areas of the jersey shore saying 2,000 fema personnel are on the ground in affected states. at least 76 people have died in the u.s. as a result of sandy, most of them from new york and new jersey. the number of people without power is dropping, though there are still 5.6 million customers that are in the dark and it could be ten days before the hardest hit areas see their power restored. more than 19,000 flights were canceled because of sandy but stranded passengers have something to be thankful for. newark and jfk airports were back in business and delta and american airlines are scheduled to resume a limited number of flights out of laguardia this morning. the airlines are waving change and cancellation fees due to the storm. the mta getting back up and running as well, subways offering limited service today. long island and metro north railroads will begin limited service, they began it yesterday and the mta are also waving all fares on rail, bus and subway rides
. the united states pledging quick relief for the millions of victims of the hurricanes. today president obama is scheduling to arrive in atlantic city to survey the damage alongside governor chris christie. this morning the associated press reports the storm killed at least 50 people. there are more than 8.2 million households still without power across 17 states. and many of the outages could last beyond election day. between damage to property and the economy, the total impact expected to reach a staggering $50 billion. the damage is perhaps nowhere worse than the coastline of new jersey where sandy came ashore laying waste to an amusement park and historic boardwalk at seaside heights. as for the airports, jfk, newark, they're expected to resume limited service this morning. the same cannot be said for laguardia. jetblue posted these photos of the runways submerged. more than 18,000 flights have already been canceled as a result of sandy. and police had to take to the air to save victims from rooftops in staten island after floodwaters surrounded their homes. they were loaded one by one in
there on all the talk shows really praising barack obama and how cooperative he's been with governor christie in new jersey. if you look at it from christ christie's perspective, that's what he should be doing. he's a governor who's going to need as much assistance and help in the aftermath of the storm as anyone. befriending the president, praising the president, bringing the president into his state and traveling the state, that's what you do when you're a governor. >> by the way, jim -- by the way, jim, not being cynical, i think you were just about to get to it, the politics of it, he's running next year in the bluest of blue states. and it does not hurt. does not hurt. being tied together with president obama. >> he's just complimenting him. you guys are all making it sound like they're going out and having a beer and, like, becoming best friends. he complimented his leadership. is that against the law? >> it's rather odd. >> does that make it more? is it odd in this climate, the climate's wrong. >> it was effusive. >> i'm more interested in mayor bloomberg and what's going on there. >>
applying since kindergarten. >> obama: on the closing weeks of this campaign governor romney has been using all of his talents as a salesman to dress up these very same policies that failed our countries so badly. the very same policies we have been cleaning up for the last four years. and he is offering them up at change. >> stephanie: exactly. and bloomberg that's huge his endorsement of the president. michael in new york. hey, michael? >> caller: hey, there sexy liberal momma. >> caller: how are you doing honey, you got power? >> caller: yeah i never lost it. but my heart and prayers are out to the others that did lost it. great show at the sexy liberal, and why the marathon is still going on. >> stephanie: why is that? >> caller: because bloomberg is absolutely insane in the membrane. and then let me mention something about the distance between obama and romney. obama has been responding to all of those affected by sandy. and chris christie has been singing nothing but praises for president obama. >> stephanie: that's right. right back on the "stephanie miller sho
do you think president obama will be able to campaign? will he be able to campaign, and what do you think about governor romney? let's listen to the audio of david axelrod answering that question. >> i'm not going to tell governor romney what to do and, frankly, i don't think he is going to ask for my opinion either, but as far as the president goes, he has real responsibilities, and he, you know -- those responsibilities come first, and, you know, he is in constant contact with craig fugate, janet napolitano and all those with responsibility here and is going to monitor this. obviously, it's a very, very concerning situation. you know, in temz of the logistics, you know, we're obviously going to lose a bunch of campaign time, but that's as it has to be, and we'll try and make it up on the back end. so for us it's not a matter of optics. it's a matter of responsibility, and governor romney can decide for himself what he wants to do. >> and there you have david axelrod, chief strategist for president obama just a short time ago explaining how the obama campaign will spend their focus
all other networks combined. >>. >>> the third and final debate between president obama and mitt romney. record number of audience watching here on the fox news channel. >> i think governor romney hasn't spent enough time how our military works. you mentioned we have fewer ships than 1916. we have fewer horses and bayonets. we have things called aircraft carriers where planes land on them. ships that go under water. so the question is not a game of battleship. it's what our capabilities. >> the reason i call it an apology tour, you went to the middle east and you flew to egypt and saudi arabia and turkey and iraq. by the way, they noticed you skipped israel. in those nations and arabic tv you said america had been did he miss i have and derisive. america has not dictated to other nations. we have freed other nations from dictatorships. >> let's start with his performance in that debate. how did the media react? >> there were several on the liberal side who thought he was condescending. i think the media wall that has been defending the president is beginning to crack. here is jus
